Step 4 - Give him some clothes

Draw 2 long ovals coming off his shoulders at an angle and link them up with some lines to make up the overalls. Add a box with a pointy bottom in the middle as a pocket.

Don't forget the Gru Industries logo on the pocket. It's a letter G made up of a C shape surrounded by four coloured in semi circles.
